Adrienne is a super sweet and submissive Chihuahua mix who was adopted from us two years ago and recently returned when her elderly owner became too ill to keep her three dogs.
I guess you probably noticed she is a little overweight . . . OK, a LOT overweight! She was overweight at 16 pounds two years ago and is now a whopping 22 pounds. She should probably be almost half that weight.
Adrienne has a gentle personality. She is a little shy at first but friendly and she does love people. She is affectionate and enjoys snuggling.
She tends to flop over for tummy rubs when greeting you and poses with that big belly skyward until she gets some nice attention. As you can see in her video, any time and any place is good for belly rubs. It is a pose of submission but that is clearly not her whole motive for exposing that tummy since she will ask for more rubs and pats if you do not give her tummy enough attention.
Adrienne is good on the leash and does enjoy walks and exploring. She needs a new owner who will take her on lots of neighborhood walks and really watch her food and treat intake so that she can regain her figure again. She is a peaceful dog and pretty low key, but does need exercise for weight control.
She is actually pretty spry for such a fat dog, and will feel great when she does not have to lug so much weight around.
Adrienne (known as Sissy in her recent home) gets along great with other dogs and has had doggie company her entire life. She would appreciate that in her new home as well, if possible. She could probably handle being an only dog, since she adores people attention, but we would love to see her in a home with a companion again.
Adrienne is 7 years old and had naturally grey and black fur when she was younger, just has a bit more of it now. Her owner said she was housetrained, just needs to be kept on a schedule and acclimated to her new home so there will not be any accidents.
